About

Counseling can be an opportunity to experience a greater quality of life. I enjoy helping others to reach that place. Providing clinical counseling for over 25 years, I've assisted survivors with all forms of trauma, anxiety and stress disorders. My practice has included working with military members and families as well as providing counseling to many Spanish speaking Latino populations . My specialties range from employee assistance for work related stress, issues of addiction to all substances including gambling and also working with the trauma of immigration. I can also provide evaluations for immigration hearings.
My primary specialization is trauma related disorders from which develop other problems such as addictions, anxiety and panic disorders,depression, codependency, thus preventing us from having a more fulfilling life. I will help you through these challenges to facilitate positive changes where you were uncertain about facing these problems alone.
I am also prepared to provide Teletherapy , should this be necessary.
